Gelem, Gelem is a song composed by Žarko Jovanović, often used as the anthem of the Romani people. The title has been adapted in many countries by local Roma to match their native orthography and spoken dialect of the Romani language. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romani_anthem
Up, Gypsy! Now is the time
Come with me Roma world
Dark face and dark eyes
Much as I like dark grapes
O Roma, O Romani youths!
